LITTLE ROCK (AP) _ No action will be taken against two bail

bondsmen, pending the outcome of a Lonoke criminal case against

them. The Arkansas Professional Bail Bondsmen Licensing Board

considered whether to impose emergency license suspensions on Bobby

Cox and Larry Norwood, but decided to take no action for now. Cox

and Norwood were arrested Monday along with Jay Campbell, who was

police chief at the time; Campbell's wife, Kelly Harrison Campbell;

and Lonoke Mayor Thomas Privett.

Privett faces a misdemeanor charge of theft of services,

involving the use of state prisoners being held in the local jail.

The other four were charged with felonies. Cox and Norwood are

accused of conspiring to make methamphetamine.
